: The Languages of Animals

Royal Institution Lectures 4: Simple Signs and Complicated Communications
Animal languages have been developed for no other purpose than to pass information to each other. To be effective, signals must be clear and incapable of being misunderstood - a process called ritualisation. Many striking things animals do, and many of their bright colours, are explained by David Attenborough.

This week: Some Like It Hot
' I'm a little scared right now because I've never set myself totally on fire before.'
Stuntman Bob Woodham has ' died ' for a living countless times in films like You Only Live Twice, Adam's Woman and Fahrenheit 451. He works with. a team of stuntmen. If it's not Cleopatra or The Guns of Navarone, it's the latest Western, war film or action movie: a 100ft jump from a cliff on to rocks below; a motor bike smashing sidelong into a car at 30 mph; a horse dragging a ' cowboy ' along the ground by his foot at 20 mph; a car crash and two men are thrown through a windscreen ablaze.
Who are the stuntmen? How do they do their stunts? Why do they risk their lives for the cinema?

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
